Rihanna & Maggie Rogers

Episode 136

Aaron and Brent highlight the music of two different singer/songwriters:  one from Easton, Maryland and the oher from the Caribbean island of Barbados.

Gaining notoriety after a video of a visibly-moved Pharrell Williams listening to her song “Alaska” went viral, Aaron spotlights three songs from Maggie Rogers.

With a career that includes being signed by Jay-Z, acting roles in films like Ocean’s 8, and the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show, Brent looks at three songs from Rihanna.
